The cast of Anchorman: The Legend Continues is complete!
Christina Applegate's presence was missing from the teaser trailer and writer/director Adam McKay had said her character was "expendable", but David Koechner (Champ Kind) has confirmed that the hot blonde is back!
"Yes, yes," he answered when asked about Veronica Corningstone's return to the Channel 4 Evening News team. Even better, he revealed what major "change" the boys (and girl) will be facing in the sequel to the HIGHlarious 2004 comedy.
Koechner told sources that the new film is "set around the advent of the 24-hour news channel."
Sweet! It sounds like CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News are about to get roasted with some serious satire. The actor continued to explain, "They're writing a script right now, so no specific details."
Those are all the details we need for right now anyway. We trust Will Ferrell and company will deliver a solid sequel and we can't wait to see it!
